    Ok im running CM .7 and on my phone it says Roaming Indicator Off. It says this on my lock screen and on on my notify bar when i pull it down.


    http://androidforums.com/motorola-droid/62127-nfl-mobile-live-out-droid.html



    And from what i read here

    Download: NFL Mobile on Verizon Now | Droid Life: A Motorola Droid Blog

    All i have to do is change the text to read Verizon Wireless. This is what one guy says

    "I figured out the "only for Verizon customers" bug, for me anyway. I had a custom name via pulldown editor. On a hunch, I opened up pulldown editor and changed that back to Verizon Wireless, applied, rebooted and sure enough, NFL worked.
    If you have Ultimate Droid, you'll have to do the same thing, to change it from "Ultimate Droid" to "Verizon Wireless".
    This sucks, because I really liked having my name in there rather than Verizon's branding. Hopefully someone will think up a work-around"


    So how do i change this so i can get this app to load.

    Behind you...
    An updated version of NFL Mobile was already released today in the market. I downloaded the first release this morning and the updated version this afternoon. This updated version may fix your problem.

    The update will not fix the problem. I downloaded the app about 10 minutes ago and it didn't work. It said I have to be on a verizon wireless plan which I already am. I'm running jrummy's remix of cyanogen. I had used the pull down editor a while back to change the banner to a different name. I had to change it back to Verizon via pull down editor and it worked after that.

    Chances are you were an Alltel customer and are still on an Alltel plan. Verizon is aware of the issue and is quickly attempting to correct it. Verizon staff received an internal email stating just that yesterday. Give em' some time, they'll sort things out!

    The 2 major issues are former All-Tel customers (not all, but a vast majority of them) as well as the banner. If your banner doesn't say Verizon then 99% of the time it will not work. If you're a former All-tel customer that came over to the RedZone after the buyout, then it seems more like a 75% chance it will not work (I have seen a report here or there of former All-Tel customers whose NFL app works, but I suspect that at least in one case the person canceled their existing and started a brand new contract from VZW - which ain't the same as being a former All-Tel customer that was ported over to VZW.

    Seems to me that someone will figure a way to fix this from the back end and all will be well.

    I will only take one dev that cant get it to get pissed off and make it work. IMO...

    Yea im ex alltel on a alltel plan so i know what my problem is.

    Well, the All-Tell customer thing is a VZW side fix.

    The banner thing is, well, yea, a dev who will stop changing the banner in their current / next ROM release.

    I run UD9.8 for now and I can confirm that with Verizon in the banner the NFL app is working perfectly fine. Now, I am not saying go get UD9.8 - just showing an example of the correct banner making the issue go away....

    Another update to the app today. It works with any banner now. I would assume it fixes the Alltel issue as well.

    I can confirm that a person with a Alltel plan can now use this app. And someone said VZW would not fix it :)
